How to Grind Coffee with a Blender

Teasia coffee beans

Using a blender to grind your coffee can be a good alternative if you don’t have access to a coffee grinder. Although some blenders have the “grinder” option you still need to proceed with caution. If you don’t grind the beans enough, you won’t get the most benefit of the bean. But if you grind too much you risk burning the beans’ natural oils with the heating blades, making the coffee taste bitter.

Another important tip to remember is to only grind what you will be using. Coffee will lose its freshness and flavor 30 minutes after being ground because of the exposure to oxygen.  This being said, you will need to blend in small spurts. Our Brazil Fazenda roast is smooth, has light acidity, mild and buttery with hints of hazelnut and cocoa that balance the light and sweet berry tones.

Instructions

  1. Set your blender on high or “grinder” speed.
  2. Scoop in ¾ of a cup of coffee beans at a time (remember to only blend what you need).
  3. Blend until you have the consistency desired.

Pro Tip:

Depending on you preferred brewing method is wat will dictate the kind of grind you will need:

GRIND METHOD
Coarse French Press
Medium Coarse Chemex
Medium Machine Drip
Medium Fine  Siphon
Fine Aeropress Espresso
Turkish Turkish Coffee

How to make Coffee without a coffee maker.

desktop-3205408_960_720

For most of us, our day doesn’t start until we’ve had our cup of coffee. But some of us don’t have a coffee maker and that keeps us from getting our daily kick of caffeine in the morning! However, fret not, because you don’t always need a coffee maker to brew your coffee. It can be done without it too!

All you need is some roasted coffee beans, a grinder, filter, and some hot water! We have 25 new flavors of roasted whole beans that come in a variety of flavors and notes. Grab a pack now! Here are some of our recommendations:

Teasia Coffee Colombia Huila
Teasia Coffee Costa Rica
Teasia Coffee Malawi
Teasia Coffee Timor

Let’s dive into the making of coffee!

  1. Measure a tablespoon of coffee for one cup
  2. Grind your coffee on medium, it should end up looking like sand
  3. Place your filter on top of the coffee cup
  4. Pour a tiny amount of water on the grounds and let them sit for 30 seconds
  5. Pour half of the water slowly over the grounds (30 second duration)
  6. Pour the rest of the water in smaller increments (three or four)
  7. Toss the filter with the grounds
  8. There you have it! If you like, you can add creamer and sugar. But congrats on making your very own fresh cup of coffee!

Single Origin Coffee

pexels-photo-374852

There is a lot of talk in the coffee world about single origin coffee. Mostly the buzz is about finding out exactly what “single origin coffee” means. Many  are saying that single origin coffee is just coffee that is a product of one region, country or farm. Others have said that it is not just the one farm production that makes this coffee unique but the tractability of the coffee that really makes all the difference. As consumers know exactly where their coffee is from and how it’s handled before enjoying that cup of joe.

Typically because of the unique traceability factor. Single origin coffee tend to be higher quality but it is worth the higher price. Due to the fact that it is traced back to a single source, the coffee is usually very specific rather than a blend. This can really make the taste unique to the specific farm that it has come from.

Single origin coffee has become increasingly more popular and now a lot of consumers are buying more of it. They can find comfort in the fact that they can see straight on the label the farm, climate, people, land, and processing that relates directly to their personal bag of coffee. Even with people who wouldn’t exactly call themselves coffee connoisseurs the word on the street about single origin coffee really has them seeking it out.

At Teasia, we  know how important it is that you have a cup of coffee that you can count on. To have the knowledge of what you’re sipping on is one of the most important things to us. Leave the heavy lifting up to us and just sit back and taste the flavors of all of the different single origin coffees that we offer. So many flavors, in both whole beans as well as unroasted green beans. We’ll harvest,  we’ll roast and you enjoy.
